John: Hi everyone, and welcome back to ThaiPod101.com. I'm John.
Jay: And I'm Jay!
John: This is Must-know Thai Slang Words and Phrases, Season 1, Lesson 4. In this lesson, you'll learn words for expressing positive feelings. These expressions are often used when a person is impressed by something.
SLANG EXPRESSIONS

John: Listeners, please repeat.
Jay: เจ๋ง
[pause - 5 sec.]
John: Use this expression when you are impressed by something or you find anything cool or anyone with a cool personality. It can be used as an adjective or just as an exclamation. It does not refer to temperature.

Jay: [SLOW] ปังมาก [NORMAL] ปังมาก
John: Listeners, please repeat.

Jay: [SLOW] เจิด [NORMAL] เจิด
John: Listeners, please repeat.
Jay: เจิด
[pause - 5 sec.]
